Resources Available to Teachers

Below are types of resources available to teachers working with gifted students:

Enrichment Kits

SD43 is please to offer 12 Enrichment Kits for use with elementary and middle school students. The kits are ideal for students in Grades 4 – 7 who are interested in hands-on, challenging activities. These kits are ideally suited for small groups of “Challenge” students in a pull-out setting, or enrichment purposes in the classroom.

Instructions:
There are a total of 24 kits (two copies of each of the 12 kits) available for loan throughout the district

  1. Each kit comes in a 17 litre plastic container
  2. Available for 6 week loan, from date of sign-out.
  3. Phone Student Services at 604.937.6386 to arrange a loan.
  4. Teachers are responsible to pick-up and drop-off the kits at the Student Services Office/Library on time.
  5. Teachers are responsible to return the kit in the condition they found it. This includes replacing any consumable materials in the kit.

Enrichment Kits are available upon request by SD43 teachers from Student Services. Click here to view Enrichment Kit Overviews.

The Toolkit for Curriculum Differentiation includes:

  • Individualized programming for all gifted students who require it, especially those who have areas of passion, talent, interest or expertise.
  • The Brilliant Behaviours checklist, where student strengths such as imagination, memory, ethics, expressiveness, reasoning, motivation, humour, and problem-solving are highlighted by teachers, parents and the students themselves.
  • Strategies for adaptations linked to the needs created by those strengths are selected using the Guide For Selecting Learning Strategies chart, which helps teachers incorporate the critical elements for differentiation in content, process and product: abstractness, complexity, relevance, self-selection, open-endedness, expert method of inquiry, and reflection.
  • The Possibilities For Learning survey takes students through the process of designing their own individual project, based on 114 responses about their learning preferences.
  • Other useful tools for teachers, such as learning contracts, student vision statement formats, interdisciplinary themes and objectives.

The Toolkit is available upon request for SD43 personnel. Check out our Internal site.
